The Japanese way of greeting is bowing.
The way one bows depends on the social
status of the person he or she is greeting. If
this other person has a higher status, one
should bow lower and longer.
Shaking hands, on the other hand, is not
common among the Japanese; however,
they often do so when greeting a foreigner.
The primary language spoken by Mexican
people is Spanish, brought to the region by
Hernán Cortéz and his men when they
arrived from Spain to conquer the land in
the name of the Spanish Crown. However,
more than sixty two different native
languages are still spoken by several
Mexican people, mainly in rural areas. This
makes Mexico the most idiomatically
diverse country in the entire world.
Russians are more likely to be cautious and
conservative defenders of the status quo.
Their cruel climate, harsh history, and
skeptical outlook on life has caused Russians
to value stability, security, social order, and
predictability, avoiding risk. The tried and
tested is preferred over the new and unknown.
Americans, as a nation of risk-takers, can
have their patience tested by Russian caution,
and anticipation of the negative.
